Hello,
I have studied your case and I think that you are having cervical spondylitis. In this condition there is nerve compression in the spine and that causes pain and tingling and numbness in shoulder and hand. To confirm this diagnosis you will need MRI.
I would like to suggest you to follow these stages.
1.Tablet Pregabalin and Methylcobalamine tablet daily.
2.Soft cervical collar.
3Intermittent cervical traction exercises.
4. Avoid using very high pillow.
I hope these steps will help you.:Let me know if there is any other followup questions.
thanks
